Thank you for your comments EKGO. We will have a look into it!

Perhaps we should think about setting a higher level of entry fee for those who would like to take part but don't want the pressure of having to raise sponsorship? This would mean you get to take part and the charity raises vital funds too!

Would this appeal to you? Please let us have your feedback.

Entry fees for JANUARY entries into The Forces March have been reduced to just £109!! That's a whopping £40 saving. Hurry though, the discount is only for entries placed during January! www.forcesmarch.org.uk

This looks awesome! I am still a new runner but one day I would love to enter something like this. I wish you all a fantastic time and hope that loads of money is raised for the veterans charity... have fun!!

Thank you. The Forces March attracts people fo all ability and experience levels. It is certainly not an easy challenge and the route is highly demanding BUT there is always a mix of walkers and runners and the bond that forms amongst everyone is very special. It is what most participants say gets them through it all (well, that and the amazing physio team! lol)

Why not join us for just one or two stages? Every day is open to everyone. You can do a single stage or any combination of the 5. It's about being a part of it and helping to raise money for our Veterans.

They cant take part if their on deployment outside the UK but many units have a 'rear party' etc that can field a team.

The fundraising target is exactly that, a 'target' and not an entry requirement. The requirement is that all participants raise sponsorship for The Veterans Charity but if people don't reach the target, we not going to be stopping anyone from taking part.

We want everyone to enjoy the event and make a difference in every way they can.

Hi thanks for your reply. We have reduced the target for serving military as it is much more difficult for them to raise sponsorship money whilst on active duty. Many units have their own charities to support as well and we want to make The Forces March as inclusive as possible. This is a recent decision based on the last 3 years.

There are more than 5 million Veterans in the UK and the vast majority of us know or are related to someone who has served in the Armed Forces. We are very proud of the amount of support we get from current service personnel but we are all too aware of the huge demands placed on their time.

 

I hope you will join the adventure in May.
